Photosynthesis is the main driver of primary production in most ecosystems. Plants, ranging from miniscule phytoplankton to hulking mangroves, carry out the bulk of photosynthesis in our biosphere. Because different plant species have adapted to the particular light conditions of their natural habitat, they grow best under specific types of illumination. Thus, to obtain optimal health and yield, artificial lighting should meet these intrinsic criteria as closely as possible. When it comes to orientation to a light source, plants and zooxanthellate animals (such as corals) are often quite finicky. Indeed, slight changes in light exposure may make the difference between burning, light starvation or rapid growth. Light positioning can therefore be just about as important as the quality of the light itself!
